Premake your favorite hearty recipe and freeze individual servings for grab-and-reheat dinners. By the time evening rolls around after a long day’s work, it's uncommon for the average individual to have the energy to cook an elaborate meal. The single best thing you can do to ease the weekday dinner blues is to make a few favorites ahead of time and freeze for those nights you can’t be bothered. Not only will having frozen meals on hand significantly decrease your urge to reach for the takeout menu, but it will also decrease your overall food costs and keep you eating healthily. Prepare our Asparagus, Pea & Navy Bean Wheat Berry Risotto in advance.
Aromatic soup with green peas, cool mint and fresh basil contrasts with zesty orange sautéed shrimp in this light meal.
